I rode it for just a few runs up and down the street. Then drained the break in oil... replaced it with some "66" Trop artic 10w-40 to finish with the break in... took it to the dunes here in Utah (Jerico) performed fantastic!! after the break in is done I'm sure I will go to a synthetic, not for sure wich brand?? just a good synthetic and change it often.

I always run synthetic now...it's definitely expensive but it covers all bases.

Everyone has their own opinion of oil...I think you should all take a look at the below link and start with:
Motor Oil 101
Motor Oil 102
Motor Oil 103

I think you will enjoy the read and maybe pick up a thing or ten...

10 hours at half throttle is what it says, then check the valves, change the oil and let er rip. :eek:
